SOS Emergency Call

There are two states of SOS Emergency Call: Automatic and manual operation.

In a crash situation where the airbags have deployed, an automatic emergency call is made to the emergency services. In a non-crash situation when emergency assistance is required, the emergency call button can be used manually.

In both states, the button flashes orange until the emergency services answer the call, at which point the flashing stops.

The vehicle location, your details and the nature of the problem is automatically taken and the appropriate emergency services are despatched to your location.

Contact with the emergency services agent can be made at any time by pressing the button.

The emergency call button is located in the overhead console

Press and release the button cover to reveal the button. The button is illuminated by a red LED. Press the button for two seconds to make a direct call to the emergency services.

After use, push the button cover back into place.

Note: If the vehicle is travelling abroad, the SOS Emergency Call will still connect, however, the vehicle's location and the vehicle's details may not be automatically sent.

This feature has two backup batteries that will retain full system operation, in the event that the vehicle's battery is disconnected or disabled.
